Police are searching for a man suspected of setting alight a house on the Kapiti coast.

Kapiti-Mana police said they wanted to locate 38-year-old Randall Ure after a warrant was issued for his arrest for arson and burglary.

Two weeks ago, a Doncaster Terrace residential property was set alight and police believed Ure was responsible.

Police believed he was living rough in his red 1990 Toyota Corona station wagon, registration OS4934, in the Porirua area.

He was a disqualified driver and should not be on the road, police said.

Ure's behaviour was unpredictable and he should not be approached.

Anyone who saw Ure or his vehicle should contact Porirua Police as soon as possible on 04 238 1401.
